    Does anyone know if buying a Fuji XF lens from the dedicated Fuji Refurb Store is there a possible discount code you can use or has that finished?

    Cheers;

    It NEVER applied to lenses. "however it did apply to cameras with attached lenses."
    It was and still is a way to get a cheap lens if It comes as part of a package. and then to sell on the body.
    Even though there is no longer any discount code available.
    It has always been a cheap way to buy a f2.8/4 18-55

    Does the refurb store get restocked in waves? It seems like all the main lenses are out of stock. Happy to wait for a few months, but ideally want a lens before Christmas.

    lenses never hang around for long. you need to keep a close watch.

    many of them are shop returns where people have changed their mind. it seems like the repair shop waits for them to build up before checking them and putting them up on the site.

    @Craikeybaby Next round of cashback deals are announced on Weds 10th Oct, last year they doubled cashback on Black Friday weekend (though a number of retailers put their 'usual' prices up for that weekend - it pays to order as soon as the deals are announced!!!) - hope that helps

    Why did you use the settings ISO 1600 1/3200 f2 for this shot. They would not seem to be optimal.

    I was just playing around with the iso, as at the moment I like a bit higher iso even 25,600 is great.

    Is anyone using an extended eyecup on the X-T3? I had one (bought ages ago) on the X-T1, and can't for the life of me remember which part it was. All suggestions welcome.

    Well it seems like the email alerts worked! Neither 35f2 nor 23f2 were in stock last night, but had availability emails this morning.

    Unfortunately I still have a few more things to sell before I can buy.

    Sometimes it’s cheaper to go greyish to E-Infin or similar than Fuji refurb.

    Rent a car (I can point you at a place that does reasonable rates!) and head down to Agia Galini for a night or 2 - NOTHING between you and North Africa apart from the occasional fishing boat!

    1) I am not a wedding photographer
    2) These are not the final images, I've been playing with the processing
    3) I was a fill in as the original photographer is in hospital (motorcycle accident).

    Roll up, roll up, cashback deals being announced tomorrow (remember Black Friday often provides additional cashback), some of these are so good, that I think we might see some retail prices go back up, so you might be onto a winner if you buy straight away, but I'm not being quoted on that!!!

    £45 23mmF2, 35mmF2, 50mm F2, 35mmF1.4, 60mm, 18mm

    £90 23mmF1.4, 56mm, 18-55mm, 18-135mm, 55-200mm

    £135 16mmF1.4, 80mm Macro, 56mmAPD, 90mm, 10-24

    £180 50-140mm, 16-55mm

    £270 100-400mm

    and £250 on an X-T2, anyone who manages to get a X-T2 at today's best price of £979 and get the cashhsback will do very well, but note that most retailers on camerapricebuster have already put the X-T2 back up to £1249!!!

    Other bodies £230 on X-H1, £230 on X-Pro2, £90 on X-T20

    (X100F - £180, X-E3 +18-15 bundle £180, X-T100+15-45 bundle £90)

    Remember these will only apply to a authorised UK stockist, and not grey suppliers - purchases made between 10/10/18 and 10/1/19

    I found today that I need to go wider than the 18-55 allows me. The 10-24 is way out of my price range right now and as it is mainly going to be used for architecture and maybe a bit of landscape then I have no problem with it being manual focus, so a Samyang looks the sensible option.

    Looking at the 10mm f2.8 and the 12mm f2.0 there isn't a huge difference in price looking on WEX and I imagine second hand that difference is less noticeable. The technical differences are obvious, I don't really need the larger aperture a anytime I am struggling for light with this lens it would be a situation where I can use a tripod, so the obvious choice would seem to be to go for the wider FOV. But are there any differences beyond the tech specs?

    The 10mm is a multi sensor mount lens fitted with a Fuji X mount, its big and heavy comapred with the APS-C designed 12mm, which is re-reassuringly light!!!

    The Samyangs do render colours differently to the Fuji lenses, and since they are wide suffer from a certain degree of optical distortion. Don't dismiss the Fuji 14mm, as this is very sharp, compact, and takes the same size filters/hood as your existing 18-55mm.

    I have the Samyang 12mm (its the second one I've owned, I really didn't rate my first copy), but it rarely comes out of the bag, I much prefer my Fuji 16mm wherever possible.
